This type of accommodation suits the budget traveller and back packer. It is found in the boarding house type accommodation for stays of 1 week or longer and in the shared Dorm Room of a Back Pack-Packer Hostel.

These properties, though often centrally located, do not occupy prime locations like the Rocks and Darling Harbour which are the domain of the 4 and 5 Star Hotels.

Short, medium and long term accommodation for budget conscious travellers can be found right across the city from the beach to the city itself. Generally found outside the CBD, they are often in the City fringe suburbs that ring the CBD.

Sydney offers many options that will help you save on lodging, so that you can push your dollar that little bit further.

Please view information on What You Can Expect from this type of accommodation (below).

Please do not make requests that cannot be met in this price range e.g. Family Rooms or Serviced Apartments.

Due to the large number of emails requesting hotel amenities and facilities, bedding configurations and locations that do not exist in this price range, we apologise if we are not be able to reply to unrealistic requests.

(Please note that we are unable to book dorm beds for single travellers for stays of less than a week or, in the case of Groups, for less than 3 nights.)
